I'm a senior citizen shade tree mechanic, and have some experience with tools and do-it-yourselfer mechanics tool sets such as this one. I'll comment in two parts - the quality, and then the assortment.
The Quality: I recall, as a pre-teen, "helping" my dad work on his race car. While handing him tools (he could have found them quicker without my help), I commented on a Craftsman wrench, at the time having been impressed by their current lifetime guarantee advertising campaign. My dad replied that the Craftsman was indeed a good strong tool, but then picked up a Snap-On wrench and explained that the highest quality hand tools are just as strong, but combine strength with a slim design which can reach into tough spots and consume less weight and bulk in a tool box. Not to mention the Snap-On wrench's aesthetic appeal, with it's polished mirror finish and smooth edges - it looks great, performs great, and feels great.
The look and feel of the tools in this Crescent set remind me of that conversation, and I find that they more resemble the Snap-On approach. Nice mirror finish (the wrenches and ratchet sets), no sharp edges, great feel, high strength. The ratchets have a comfortable contoured handle. The ratchet 72 tooth mechanism, although not the very best that I have handled, are very, very good. Nice light ratcheting resistance and a nice tight swing (5 degrees) between clicks. Just a wee bit of detectable play. Handy thumb lever for on/off (my favorite design choice). I noted that the ratchet handle lengths were a bit shorter than some of the other brands I own. I think I'm OK with that - they are long enough, and in many cases, shorter is better.
The combination wrenches in the set are on the short to average side, but acceptable for this type of set. Great feel and finish. Strong chrome-vanadium construction. The sockets/extensions have the same mirror finish and strength, and tout Crescent's "Surface Drive" design, which purports to mitigate rounding off of fasteners.
The tongue & groove pliers (commonly referred to as "Channelocks", after the original maker), are well executed and have a soft grip. The long nose pliers (commonly referred to as "needle-nose"), likewise.
I really like the large, smooth, semi-soft grips on the screwdrivers. Great grip and feel. I have had a few uses with these screwdrivers, and beside liking the feel, the tip strength seems to be excellent. No deformation so far. Except for one Torx bit, I haven't used any of the bit assortment yet. They are chrome-moly and should be fine. Ditto the hex key wrenches (often called allen wrenches). I've only had a couple of light uses (license plate bolts and such) and really haven't challenged them yet, so I don't know if they will tend to hang in there - or bend/strip/break off. They seem to be hardened steel w/ black oxide finish.
The oddball in the set is the 8" adjustable wrench (commonly referred to as a "Crescent" wrench, after the original manufacturer). The tool in the set is as shown on the product page, and although marked, "Heavy Duty", it strangely does not bear the Crescent name, and unlike the other finely finished tools in the set, this one has a crude cast finish. It does have a smooth thumbwheel action, nice tight clearances, and appears to be as good as about any of the competition, but I thought it strange that Crescent's traditional flagship product, in this case, isn't even a Crescent. Hmmmm. I suspect there is some legal restraint in play here. But the adjustable wrench offered will serve just fine. And the stated alloy steel will be rust proof.
My final note on quality concerns the case. I like it. My set arrived dumped on my porch by UPS - not known for gentle handling. When I opened, only the 1/4" and 3/8" ratchets were loose from their moorings. Everything else was still snapped into place. The snaps in this set are indeed very firm, but I think I like that better then having sockets dump out every time I open the case. I really like the tri-fold design. Besides closing up securely using 4 latches, the tri-fold can provide the option, when working in a tight space, of using less floor space by leaving one of the "wings" folded in. I also like that the integral handle is located on top, allowing the case to stand "vertically" - again consuming less floor space. And finally, I like that all of the hinges are real pivoting hinges. They operate smoothly and should last (I have a 12 year old Craftsman set. The hinges are just flex-plastic and the latches have long ago broken off after the plastic got tired of flexing).
The Assortment: Both SAE and Metric (a must nowadays). The only downside is that the max sizes offered in this set tend to top out slightly small in my opinion (it's all relative anyway). The largest SAE combination wrench is only a 5/8", the metric 15mm. The sockets are more generous and top out at 7/8" and 21 mm. I will concede that the inclusion of the adjustable wrench helps. This one will expand to up to 1". Many such sets do not include an adjustable wrench, but combining the one provided here with the socket sets can really provide some versatility.
Notwithstanding my downside comment on the limited max sizes, the small size assortment is unusually good. The smallest sockets start at a very tiny 4mm and 5/32. Big tool sizes cost much more than small ones, so juggle all the math as you will, but still . . . when I need SMALL to medium big, this is definitely the set I'll be pulling out.
1/4", 3/8", and 1/2" drive ratchet socket sets provide versatility. The 1/4" drive sockets are all 6-point. The 1/2" drive sockets are all 6-point. The 3/8" drive are all 12-point, EXCEPT for the deep-well sockets, which are 3/8" drive and are 6-point. Well thought-out, in my opinion. Minimizing the bulk in the set, but providing some muscular options for tough fasteners. There is an assortment of socket extensions, in all drive sizes, as well as a 3/8" to 1/4" F/M adapter. When you add all the possible combinations, along with the 1/4 drive adapter on the magnetic bit driver handle, there are a BUNCH of possible small to medium big size socket wrench combinations possible here.
Lots of hex keys, SAE & metric. From the teeny .035", .9mm (again, when you need really small, this is your go-to set) up through 1/4", 6mm.
40 piece bit set, with the magnetic drive handle. Super assortment. Phillips and straight blades, Torx (wide size range), Pozidriv, hex. Again, when I need a driver with one of the above applications, I'll be pulling out this set.
Screwdrivers - 2 assorted Phillips, 2 assorted straight.
Pliers - Good 8" tongue & groove, and good 8" long nose (with wire cutter).
And an 8" adjustable wrench.
The tools do not display a country of manufacture, except for the adjustable wrench, which says, China. The box says, Made in Taiwan.
I've commented several times on the size, but in summary I'll just say that in those cases where you'll be working with fasteners larger than 7/8" (or 21mm), you'll be limited with this set. But those larger sizes are pretty rare around the home and in most automotive uses. On the other hand, the minimum size availability offered here goes all the way down to jewelry size applications. These tools are attractive and high quality, are of a very versatile selection (wrenches, pliers, bit sets, etc), and nicely encased. This is an excellent choice for a single set to keep in the closet, garage, boat, or vehicle.
Well, I sure didn't want to take my huge collection of tools with a few essential ones missing. Cuz I need tools at the house to work on the Harley, lawn mowers, weed whacker, bicycles and change oil on the vehicles, etc.. So what did I do? Haha, I ordered this Cresent set from Amazon.
I really wasn't expecting much because of the price. I'm surprised, they are really nice, perfect to leave in my hanger to use when I need them. The hangers lock up but if somebody like a Gremlin perhaps, grabbed these tools it wudnt be a financial blow.
Anyway back to the tools, the sockets are heavy and chrome, the ratchets are very nice, screwdrivers are very nice as is the needle nose pliers and channel locks. The Cresent wrench seems a bit funky but adequate, I like the full assortment of metric and American hex wrenches and torque bits.
I was also surprised how big the case is and its heavy. I read several complaints on the case being cheap, I think it's just fine, what do you expect for 99 buks? I'm just a weekend mechanic, but, I know good tools, & these are keepers.
That being said, -1 star because the case needs work. Some of the tools can fall out of their position when closing the case. Others are extremely difficult to get out because they are in too tightly. I have another Crescent tool set very similar to this, and a number of the tools in that set can also fall out when closing it. As well, the red latches on this case come off very easily (see attached picture), especially if you hold onto them to help close the lid.
I take off another star for the bit quality. I used a Phillips bit today to put in 2 screws. The bit got damaged... after only 2 screws! See attached picture for the damage. I'm a bit worried that the rest of the bits are also this shoddy quality and will be damaged after very light use.
